While you were pregnant have you had a stranger or a co-worker reach out and touch your belly without permission? Especially a male co-worker who was a couple of levels up above you?

  • I had many people try to touch my tummy. I stepped back and told them just cause it's huge doesn't mean my personal space doesn't extend around it.
    If your male superior tries it again I would inform him that uninvited touching is a form of sexual harassment whether you're pregnant or not.

  • If it made you uncomfortable, file a sexual harassment complaint.

  • Let him know it made you feel uncomfortable and hope that he never crosses that line again.

  • I work front desk at a motel n some regulars that come in do try to touch my belly. I let them kno i'm not partial to anyone but me touching my stomach. When friends try to touch i tolerate so as not to make them feel bad but it still bothers me. When i want them to stop i simply step arms length away from them
